Take a look in the Talamania III pic thread to see what type of creations we are talking about.

Bill Refsland's Devout Chariot had two Nameless Beasts, you know, the phallic lizard things, as the engines for the chariot.

It's all about fun.  The Dwarf one has a Dark Tusk Totem pulling it, the SOK and Firstborn have horses, as do the Elves, though I would have made theirs with Dragonbane!!

The pics may have to be moved here for inspiration.

Hello

I thought the SOK chariot had two  Elk from the Monarch pulling it.

That would be cool.  I don't remember the SOK one, as I was too busy racing!!  And winning!!   :-\

William is right, the SOK was pulled by twin Monarch Elks...very nice indeed.  It was beautiful.

Got some great ideas. They have to do especially with the following rule:


All entry designs must be chariot styled (i.e.- a conveyance pulled by something).

I am thinking Warzone Capital.
Always look out for number one, but don't step in number two.
What do you mean Flash Gordon approaching? OPEN FIRE!
The entire Capitol Army.
Don't ever say anything but a 20 before rolling the dice.

2" to 3" by 3" to 4", or so.  There is no standard.  I would say that 4"by 5" would be the upper limit.
If sing, sang, and sung, sink, sank, and sunk, and drink, drank, and drunk, how is it that it isn't bring, brang, and brung, think, thank and thunk, and ding, dang, and dung?

Don't even get me started about bad, badder and baddest.  Run, ran AND run...again?  C'mon!

I'm looking at my "hobby priority list" of things to do, and I may have to back out of my intention to enter the contest.  I've got a couple three things I need to sculpt, pretty much everything in my Forge of Ice catalog still to paint, and a couple of units for my Wargods world campaign army to paint, too.

Building and converting a Chronopia chariot is on the list, but I really shouldn't do it before I do the other stuff...

*sigh*

There just aren't enough hours in the day... :(

No matter what every valid entry in this contest will receive a personalized unit card and will be welcome to be used at every event that this game is run. Also all valid entries will receive there own PDF of the latest version of the rules so they can run it any time they want.

Thanks for making this so neat guys, I loved doing this for Thom, never thought it would get this cool.

You guys rock!

I've been after these rules for years. I'm definitely in now.  :D

Where's the voting option for, "Both - why are you even asking?"
If sing, sang, and sung, sink, sank, and sunk, and drink, drank, and drunk, how is it that it isn't bring, brang, and brung, think, thank and thunk, and ding, dang, and dung?
